Ampleforth Arms

Rare Opportunity in Residential Oxford

The Ampleforth Arms which is due to receive a significant investment of £326k, is ideally positioned at the very heart of Risinghurst, Oxford. The planned works combined with the superb demographics of affluent families and young professionals, provides an excellent opportunity for an experienced publican or entrepreneur.

The future vision for the site is to unify the currently disjointed bar areas, thus creating one single, open plan trading area with a completely new look and feel. A planned change of name will create a new identity. A wonderful food menu featuring pub classics will be introduced and the pub will offer a premium drinks range to compliment the planned refurbishment and further increase revenue.

Pub Features

Trading Area & Facilities

Externally, the pub will receive a new lighting and signage scheme as part of the planned works. Works will also be completed on the rear secure garden and decking area to encourage families to stay and relax during the warmer summer months.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.

Where a significant investment is made in a pub by Star Pubs & Bars, an "Investment Exemption" will be required. The exemption means that the option of a Market Rent Option lease won't be available at rent review for a period of up to seven years for this site, as per The Pub Code (2016).

Private Accommodation

Private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a lounge and kitchen. In line with our Ready To Trade promise, we will ensure your property is in good repair so you can focus your energy on your new business.

In order to ensure a successful start-up, all applicants must have a minimum £10,000 un-borrowed funds.

The Estimated Licensee Fixtures & Fittings (F&F) Value assumes that the pub will be let on a Rolling Tenancy or Business Start-Up Agreement, where we own the majority of the F&F. The F&F Value for Full Repairing & Insuring Leases will be significantly more.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
